AMD Athlon X2 BE-2350 Processor Review

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Quote:
AMD has been having a tough run at the processor business as of late thanks to their friends at Intel. Where once the Athlon line of CPUs was the dominant one in terms of performance leaving the Pentium 4 in the dust, with the Core 2 Duo line of processors from Intel, those positions are now reversed.

Price cut after price cut, AMD has tried to stay competitive by trying to match or beat Intel’s price/performance rates. Unfortunately this has left AMD without any higher priced processors, cutting their revenues dramatically. AMD is hoping that there is one area that they can creep into that Intel has not yet put their death grip: low power desktop and HTPC systems.

Could be another nice overclocker like the 3600

Not on newegg yet.

It's cool (no pun) to say that the new-gen only uses 45w, but those power charts don't impress like one might expect.

These may be great OCers, but they're nothing to wet the bed about.

Intel is chasing AMD around and around. Its a great deal of pressure to be AMD right now since not only did Intel came out with a better CPU, but better price as well. Not to mention the AMD/ATI issue with the HD 2900XT right now

Seems like AMD is taking it in 2 holes ............................. ................................................ .......................

Will be a shame for AMD to stop selling to the enthusiast market, or go bankrupt, leaving us with no choice but Intel... although intel is great atm I would personally always like a choice and some competition for them, hopefully AMD will pull through!!
